Air for Android template missing from Flash CS5 Professional

I am trying to get started with developing android apps in flash.  Most tutorials begin with my selecting the Air for Android template in Flash CS5 Pro.  This option is not available to me.  When I try to install the extension I get this: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashpro_extensionforair/
I am running the latest update for CS5.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!
John

Hey James,
Thanks for the reply.  I clicked the updates button but all I can find is the trial version of CS5.5.  Is that correct?

  • Air for Android - Receiving content from other apps

    I would like to enable my app to receive text content from other apps. Everything is working except the invoke event is missing the shared text. Do I need to add some extra permissions to receive content from other apps or do I need to modify something else?

  • Air for Android language problem

    i have an Air for Android APK compiled by Flash CS5.5 that shows support for languages that are not in the app. I successfully removed these in my iOS apps, but am unable to find out how to do this for Android apps. Anyone developed a process to fix this?

    I'm still having this issue with every export. This seems to be a problem that just won't die.
    Edit: This might be the answer

  • How can I use a file in flash cs6 that I made in flash cs5.5 air for android

    I have made an app in in air for android in flash cs5.5 air for android, and I want to edit it in cs6 and play it in cs6.
    But if I put Ctrl+Enter I got an error: createWin process failed with error 2: system couldn't find the file. I think the problem is that I'am using air for android 2.6 version in flash cs5.5 and version 3.2 in flash cs6. I have searched the web and found out that you can add older air versions using the sdk manager and I have tried it but first I get the error that the version of the sdk I am trying to install is not valid and after some files that I added to the sdk folder I get this error:Only SDK higher than version 3.4.2540 may be added.
    I there a possible way to update the air for android for an fla or apk? Or how can I let my originally file work fine in flash cs6??

    system couldn't find the file
    If you can´t get a more specific hint why your project can´t compile then I can think of some reasons theis error might occur
    1.You had files included besides the swf, like videos, audio files, xml files, that are not present in the place air expects them to be
    2.somewhere in your createWin functions there is a class import needed that isn`t present in 3.2 anymore, for example some classes or functions from classes that were valid in 2.6 are not any more in 3.2
    3. to achieve better eror logging, allow for debugging in the publishing options and see what specific lines in your code throw the error
    4.any air app needs a cert file, this needs to be created once, if you migrated to e new system it might be you never created that file which air expects to even begin the compiling process
    once you isolate the problem, report back

  • The Error Message 'Application descriptor file cannot be parsed' shows when compiling (Ctrl + Enter) Adobe AIR for Android applications on Flash Professional CS5.5

    The Error Message 'Application descriptor file cannot be parsed' shows when compiling (Ctrl + Enter) Adobe AIR for Android applications on Flash Professional CS5.5
    This is happening for most of the pupils and staff at our school and they are unable to complete their work.
    This also happens on a fresh copy of windows and CS5.5 without any updates and also with all latest updates.
    I have tried it on 32-bit and 64-bit CS5, Windows, Air and Java with the same error every time.
    There are a small minority of users where this works fine for them with no issue.
    I have tried re-setting user profiles.
    I have tried a local admin and domain admin account with the same issue
    I have noticed however that if the file is moved to the shared area it will compile. If it is on their documents area it will not compile. The users have full control in both locations. This is fine for staff but we are unable to give full control or modify access to the shared area for the pupil's
    I have been through the online support section and it directed me to phone Adobe Customer care who informed me that all support has been discontinued for CS5, CS5.5 and CS6 and they will only support creative cloud.
    Any ideas what to try next? There is no other information about this error and I cannot work out what is causing it.

    I have tried and  able to package an apk using your XML file.Could you please make sure your XML file starting from line 1 and coloumn 0.Any space will results in the error (Application Descriptor file cannot be parsed)

  • Flash cs5.5 FLVplayback Encoding Problems with Air for Android

    Dear All,
    I'm trying to play flv in my air application by using FLV playback in flash cs5.5.
    I can play flv in the pc but not on the samsung galaxy tab andriod platform.
    if anyone out there has tried out FLV playback with either an Air For Android application, where the FLV files are packaged within the app, or either streaming via normal http//:, any help  would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    First disable autoplay. It gave errors for me. Try to make the movie play with the play() command.
    to embed the movie in your air bundle, just go to publish settings for your flash project. Then in that screen go to the player settings.
    In the first GENERAL tab you'll see a the bottom that you can add files to your project
    Propably there is allready your .swf and an .xml file in there.
    Using the + icon you can add your video.
    Make sure that your video is in the same directory as your . FLA file and you can use it as is (by name)
    If for example your flashfile is in c:\mytest\mytest.fla and the video in c:\mytest\videos\myvideo.flv , then you will have to load your video as "videos/myvideo.flv" with a FORWARD slash, never use \
    Good luck

  • Download Flash/AIR for Android, where?

    When I go to Adobe's download center I don't get an option for Android download.
    So from where exactly I can download Flash player and AIR for Android ?
    Thanks

    Adobe Flash Player and AIR for Android are available directly from the Android Market on supported Android devices.  If you are unable to find Adobe Flash Player in the Market, the most likely reason is that your device does not meet the minimum system requirements.
    Specifically, Flash Player requires a CPU with support for the ARMv7-A instruction set to achieve the level of performance required for acceptable multimedia playback.
    Your device has an ARM11 CPU, which only supports the ARMv6 instruction set.
    For future reference, Adobe maintains a list of devices certified to work with Adobe Flash Player and AIR here:
    http://www.adobe.com/flashplatform/certified_devices/
    You might want to give Skyfire a try.  It uses "remote desktop" technology to render Flash animation and video in the cloud, for devices that are incapable of processing Flash content natively:

  • Google Maps for Flash in AIR for Android: ~2 minutes to start up

    I have a "Hello World" style AIR for Android app using Flash Builder 4 Burrito/Flex Hero.
    When debugging on device (stock HTC Desire) using Flex version v1.20 of Google Maps for Flash (map_flex_1_20.swc), it takes 1 minute and 50 seconds for the app to startup to display a simple map:Map3D on the home screen. The same app without the map:Map3D object starts in just a few seconds.
    There are no startup delays using the simulator.
    Anyone know what might be causing the severe startup delay when running on device?
    Thanks,
    Stephen

    Hi - yes no problem: I've uploaded a sample app here: http://crackedfrog.com/files/AndroidAIRMap.zip.
    You'll need to add a valid Google Maps API key and corresponding URL back into the maps:Map3D object:
    <maps:Map3D left="0" right="0" top="0" bottom="0"
      xmlns:maps="com.google.maps.*" id="map"
      url=""
      key=""
      sensor="false"/>
    This shows the same behaviour as described above - around 2 minutes to start up when debugging on the device.
    Appreciate any help.
    Thanks,
    Stephen

    You can post this on Flash's forum. You should get a good answer from there.
    As I understand, there should be an update in MAX. Not sure how the update will get released.

  • Can't package AIR for Android in Flash Pro CS6?

    I have trouble pakaging AIR for Android in Flash Professional CS6.
    It worked couple months ago. Buit it won't wok now.
    Here is the error dialog box:
    Can anyone help me?

    What exactly happens when you try to debug?
    When you run 'adb devices' on a command line you see your devices listed there correct?
    One thing that helps is to use the generic Google USB driver or at least have it handy. Download the Android SDK and it's in the SDK Manager. Here's where you'd find it (AndroidSDK\SDK Manager.exe):
    Note the selected "Google USB Driver" in the "Extras" rolldown. Grab it.
    Often when a device is too new or just can't connect, that driver will find it. Also keep that SDK up to the latest version and check the adb that comes with it to make sure it sees your device:
    If Flash can't see it, there was one old trick of copying over the updated Android SDK's adb over to Flash. I believe you copied over adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, AdbWinUsbApi.dll (and at the time aapt.exe) and overwrote your copy in your FLASH\AIR\lib\android\bin folder, then suddenly flash could find the devices.

  • What AIR for android version should I choose to publish Flash game on Google play store ?

    My team and I are almost done whith our mobile game development using Flash professional CS6.
    We wonder what version of AIR for Android we should publish for as a target (in publish settings)???
    because we will publish it on play store and we want it to be compatible with largest number of android phones.
    knowing that users have different versions of AIRs, different Flash Players and different OS versions on their phones.
    and are there any useful points we should take into consideration when publshing flash game on play store??
    thanks,
    Abeer

    The current version of AIR (version 13) is still compatible with the same set of Android devices as version 3 was, and there no doubt have been a lot of things fixed over the last two years. So, just use AIR 13. It’s currently compatible with over 4000 devices, which should be enough I think!

  • AIR for Android Captive Runtime

    Is it possible to package android apps with AIR (or will it be) using Flash CS5.5? I don't see anything on the web about. Just how to do it with Flex and ADT etc...

    Hi,
    I've made a complete working example for publishing an application with captive runtime, assets and native extensions starting from Flash CS5.5
    I was able to make it thanks to hints and suggestions I found in this thread.
    Note: english is not my native tongue so I hope you understand what I've written also if sometime it sounds "engrish".
    Here it is the link to the zip file:
        http://www.genereavventura.com/hosted/Air3NativeExtensions/AirVibrate.zip
    Requirements:
    - You must have Flash cs5.5 pro (obviously)
    - You must have installed the overlay for Air3.0 sdk on your Flash cs5.5 pro
    Here it is a link that explain how to accomplish it: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3939712
    Here the steps I made.
    1) Open Flash CS5.5 and create a new AIR for Android application
    2) Add the swc to the libraries used by your FLA (open Actionscript 3.0 settings and add "VibrationActionScriptLibrary.swc")
       Btw, you can find this "ready to use" native extension inside the zipfile that you can download from here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/air/native-extensions-for-air/extensions/vibration.html
       However in my example you will find also a directory named "extension" that contains it.
    3) Open and then close the "air for android settings": by doing this Flash will create yourapp-app.xml file in the directory where your FLA resides.
       For example my fla is named "vibrate.fla" so Flash created for me a "vibrate-app.xml" file.
    4) Make a copy of this "vibrate-app.xml" file by naming it "real-vibrate-app.xml" (or choose whatever name you want)
       I've done this because after modyfing the original one by adding the <extension> tag (see below) I wasn't able to test my app from within Flash IDE (when I compile it it simply doesn't start)
       Instead by doing this all worked fine.
    5) Edit the "real-vibrate-app.xml" file by adding somewhere these lines (I added it just before the <initialWindow> tag)
        <extensions>
          <extensionID>com.adobe.Vibration</extensionID>
        </extensions>
    6) Add <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/> in the <android> <manifestAdditions> part in "real-vibrate-app.xml" file.
       You should do something like this:
       <android>
          <manifestAdditions>
            <![CDATA[<manifest>
              <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>
            </manifest>]]>
          </manifestAdditions>
       </android>
    7) Develop your application
       I made a simple one that loads an external jpg and shows it on the stage: then the user can tap on it to make the phone vibrate.
       The function "doVibration" is called only when the app is running on Android Device so I do not get any executions error when I run the app from within Flash Ide
    8) Publish and test it to your USB connected device by launching the "publish.bat" file I have created
       Open a dos prompt and move to your project directory then type publish.bat and press enter.
       Note: it can be that you have to edit the bat file in order to change the path to the ADT tool that comes with Air3.0 sdk
       It should be in [your adobe flash cs5.5 directory]\AIR2.6\bin\adt (rememeber, you must have installed the Air3.0 sdk overlying the old Air2.6/2.7 in the AIR2.6 directory)
       Inside the bat file you can change easily the target type (captive or not) simply by commenting/decommenting the right line.
       Captive version is about 8Mb more than the normal one but the big deal is that the user that installs it do not need the air runtime installed on his phone!
       The "big line" that creates the package is the following one:
       call %ADT_LINK% -package -target %TARGET_TYPE% -storetype pkcs12 -keystore certificate/vibrate.p12 -storepass android AirVibrate.apk real-vibrate-app.xml -extdir extensions vibrate.swf icons assets
       where:
       call %ADT_LINK%          it's just the path to the ADT tool
       -package                 it's the command that we want ADT to execute
       -target %TARGET_TYPE%    captive/non captive version
       -storetype pkcs12        certificate related
       -keystore certificate/vibrate.p12  path to your self signed certificate
       -storepass android       certificate related, I created the example certificate with "android" password and this parameters tell ADT to always use it without prompting
       AirVibrate.apk           the name of the Apk
       real-vibrate-app.xml     the apk-xml to use that is the one we modified manually above
       -extdir extensions       it's the path to the directory that contains the native extension
       vibrate.swf              the main swf
       icons                    the icons directory
       assets                   the assets directory (where I put the external jpg)
    That's all.
    If everything is correct, the batch file creates the AirVibrate.apk then installs it on your attached usb device and run it.
    When you tap over the Android image that will appear, your phone should vibrate.
    Now.. does someone wants to develop a Native Extension to show Admob banners in our Android Air Applications?
    If I missed something, please let me know.
    Thanks
